Secure Desire is the opening move of Chase Security Series by R.L. Dunn. It is my first read by this writer and as I was feeling for some action packed romance then I decided to take a chance on the series (I love series as it gives me hope for more great books to come … add to this the family aspect and I am more than willing to take the chance).
Secure Desire gives us plenty of mystery, murder, violence, hidden agendas, clandestine ops, family, friendship, explosive chemistry and so much more!

Secure Desire (Chase Security Series Book 1)
By R.L. Dunn
5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the book Secure Desire (Chase Security Series Book 1) by R.L. Dunn. It is a story that pulled me in from the beginning and didn’t let me go until the final page. It is a thriller that had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. I loved reading about the characters of Chase and Cassie. Cassie is an intelligent, strong, and independent woman. She is an FBI agent and does her job well.

Secure Desire (Chase Security Series #1) by R.L. Dunn

Dunn has a way with bringing characters to life. This was a fantastic read and can't wait for book 2. This is the first book in the Chase Security Series and my first read by the author.

Cassiopeia Ellis, Cassie, has lost her entire family and now people are coming after her. Something happened to her six years ago and she remembers bits and pieces. The quote I choose for Cassie is: “I promise you’re not. Life is too short, and there a

Book 1

☆☆☆☆☆
This is a full length novel, and can be read as a standalone. I for one will be looking for book 2. This book is for those 18 and older due to the adult theme. A spectacular start to this Romantic Suspense Series.

This is Cassie and Ian's story. Cassie is probably the strongest heroine I have ever read about. She is Amazing. She works with the FBI, specializing in stolen art. She really knows her stuff when it comes to protecting herself fr

Secure Desire was a 5+ star read and A Chase Group Novel.
All I can say is wow, I was pulled in right from the beginning.

Cassie is an FBI agent who has had a couple of huge tragedies in her life. She has closed herself off from any type of relationship, she’s damaged.
Ian Chase met Cassie six years prior and was smitten with her, seeing her again now has brought the feelings back and he starts to pursue her. Ian is an ex-Navy Seal who owns his own successful private security team and I might add i

Secure Desire: A Chase Group Story by R.L. Dunn ​is a great story that is fast paced and there is a lot happening but it is enthralling and interesting and it certainly had me engrossed and invested. The suspense and mystery, lies and deceit are bad enough but the life of one woman had literally torn her apart. But the men who literally hold her life in their hands never want to see her go through anything like this again. There is intrigue and horror, alpha hot men and strong women, love and a ...more

Secure Desire is the first book in the Chase Security Series by R.L. Dunn. It’s the first time that I have read any of this author’s work but it certainly will not be the last. I was enticed by the blurb on this book and thought it would be the kind of book that I’d enjoy, so decided to give it a try. I’m so glad that I took a chance on this book as I absolutely loved it.
This book is filled with drama, mystery, murder and intrigue and had me hooked from the very beginning and did not let me go.

I must say I am struggling a tad with exactly where or how I want to place this book on a star scale. I have never had the pleasure of reading anything R.L. Dunn prior to Secure Desire so I was completely new all of her writing style. Dunn has one hell of a knack for detailed writing. While I loved that most of the time I felt like I was right there with the characters and in the moment I could have done without some of it sometimes. It felt a tad heavy. Only because I wanted to get to the the p ...more

When I first read the blurb for this book it sounded like a book I would really enjoy, I love a Navy SEAL story, there is just something about these characters and overall I enjoyed what I read. I will say that it is a book that is quite complex in its storyline so I wouldn’t say it was an easy read, I did have to re-read the beginning so I could fully understand what was going on but once I settled into the story it picked up in my opinion. There were quite a few t

The first thing I have to say about Secure Desire is simply awesome! I really really loved this book, I don’t know what I was expecting when I first started but it wasn’t such an enthralling read. Cassie Modine is a strong, independent FBI Special Agent. Her whole life was changed after being made an orphan as a teen then when she experienced a traumatic night 6 years previously that she has no memory of, when she is confronted by her past those who have hurt her decide to ensure that their secr ...more

Secure Desire by R. L. Dunn is not your typical romance story. R. L. Dunn wrote characters that were believable and lovable. This story takes you on a journey with Chase and Cassie. Be prepared because it is a roller coaster ride but it is worth all the emotions that come along with the story. When you are a soldier like Chase and have some lingering feel about your tour in Afghanistan your everyday life seems so different. Chase came back to get in the security business with his brother and did ...more

Very intriguing.

This is a very long book. It's full of action, intrigue, greed, evil , cruelty and lies. It's beyond evident the author has a vast knowledge of medicine, medical procedures, medical narcotics, besides the armed forces and weapons. It was one hellova roller coaster.
It was also very complex and confusing! There's such a mass of characters I seriously didn't know who was who! As an index to the book there is actually a complete list of characters...this didn't help when reading!

Secure Desire by R. L. Dunn is from the A Chase Group Series. I was drawn in because Cassiopeia, the main female character, has a history of being an art historian. Also, what a fantastic name. Ian is at the head of a private security firm after serving in Afghanistan. The two had met years before and have been brought back together. Ian will do anything to protect Cassiopeia. I was reading to find out how an art historian had gotten herself into so much danger. I really enjoyed the story and t ...more

This is one of the best written stories I've read dealing with survivors of violence. Its engaging and keeps you going from start to finish. I love Ian Chase. He shows a patience for Cassie that is not easy to do. Cassie Modine is a very engaging character. She is a strong character that is very much worth reading about.

R. L. Dunn has given us an amazing story. Not only are the main characters riveting, but the supporting characters have great depth and background without interupting the storyline. The author feeds us bits and pieces of the mystery just enough at a time to keep one guessing and on the edge of your seat. The technical information is spot on, but at the same time does not lose the layman. I highly recommend reading Secure Desire, and I will be on the look out for the next book in the series.

Secure Desire by RL Dunn is a novel belonging to the Chase Group series. This book is fast paced, action packed and a great book to read!
I thought the characters in this book had a great connection between them. They seemed to work really with each other and complimented the other. The story was quite complex, possibly a little too complex at times, but it grabs your attention and does a good job of holding it until the last page. This book is definitely worth your time if this is your genre.

It is a well written, enjoyable story that pulled me in right from the beginning. The characters are strong, they bring an emotional roller coaster ride as well as a story that comes alive. Chase returns home from a nasty tour to take over his brother’s security business. It has been six years since Cassie has seen him but a chance run in with him brings back memories. Will these two get a second chance or will secrets tear them apart one more time? I highly recommend this book.
